In a Magic Garden on Monday

….. where a dragon, Frosty the snowman and a little glass duck can frolic happily togetherJodies Flowers, Etsy, Zolo, succulents, kids art


The above arrangement was created by Little Miss M aged 5, in a pot of succulents

Then we added to it


with two more funny Forever Flowers ย made by Jodie

The photo below is Jodie’s, showing more of her wonderfully bonkers creations

Jodie Flowers on Etsy, fun sculptures

I just LOVE them!!!! They make me smile and brighten up a dull, rainy Jaunuary day.

We added some ‘flowers’ made using sculpture pieces by Zolo

Zolo sculpture pieces

These pieces are great for the children to make fanciful sculptures with – sadly they cost a fortune to buy from the US once shipping and customs duty ave been added. I first bought a set at the airport in New York when I was coming back home in 2008. Then luckily a friend of mine was able to get another set for me when she visited the US more recently.

The vase:

Hazel catkins, ash twigs and golden privet.

Pop over toย Rambling in the Garden to see what Cathy and other gardeners, from all over the globe, have put in their vases this Monday.

  1. Those are fabulous. I guess you could make some from modelling clay, or felt. Love it.

    • It will be fun seeing how her interest in gardening develops. She planted some mint in a big flower pot in the garden and often goes to check on it – I’d better check the pot for dragons and fairies.


  9. How cute! I love this idea! When my son is older and stops eating things so actively and starts doing things I ask, like “Okay, put it there…” (he usually smiles coyly and then immediately chomps on whatever it is…) we’ll have to try this! So adorable!

  11. Those lips!๐Ÿ˜‚ Frosty looks quite at ease in that garden. ๐Ÿ˜„ He may lose patience with those flowers if they start giving him a lot of lip, though!
